Moved On
well i just bought one off a fellow reefer, who by the way gave me a deal of a lifetime!! i would like to find out how to feed the reactor. the guy b4 me was using a parastalic pump, hospital looking like thing, but im not sure if i have to use that or if i can use some other powerhead like an mj1200. any thought would be great, and easy on the reactor lingo im new at this.

this is the reactor here

I just put a T in my return line and use a 1/2" MPT to 3/8" Watts fitting from Home Depot to feed my reactor. (Menard turned me on to this fitting a while back, I had been using a thread tap to make my own but this is much simpler)

The return pump creates enough pressure to drive the reactor without having to use another dedicated pump.

If you need to push the reactor effluent to any height, best to just tap off your return pump.

I have used the aqualifter mini pumps in the past to feed my Ca Rx with good results. I think they are less than $15 at PA, and easier to plumb for me than a T off of a main line.
